Job Summary

Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center is seeking a Breast Surgical Oncologist to join our multidisciplinary Breast Oncology Program. This position will be primarily based at our established downtown location and offer coverage at our new satellite facility opening in late 2022.

The successful candidate will be board-certified and demonstrate a record of clinical excellence and scholarly accomplishments to warrant an academic appointment with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Clinical experience of 3-5 years is preferred, but candidates currently in fellowship are encouraged to apply. They will be supported in developing a rewarding clinical practice in the management of benign and malignant breast disease. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a commitment to patient-centered multidisciplinary oncology care including participation in quality management, scholarship, and clinical research programs.  The program is supported by a dedicated breast imaging center and is accredited by NAPBC and Commission on Cancer.

The Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center opened a 330,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility in September 2018 dedicated solely to the full spectrum of oncology care as a component of the Baptist Health System, the region’s most preferred healthcare provider.  Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center brings an unprecedented level of oncology care to Northeast Florida and provides physicians a unique blend of clinically-focused patient care with the benefits of an academically-oriented model.  Baptist MD Anderson is one of only four national Partners chosen to replicate the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary model of cancer patient care within the MD Anderson Cancer Network®. 

Northeast Florida is economically strong, diversified, and rapidly growing.  It is alive with miles of beaches and waterways, professional sports teams, championship golf courses, exceptionally diverse cultural and recreational opportunities, and abundant natural resources. The area serves as home to some of the best cost of living, school system, and quality of life experiences that the Sunshine State has to offer. Immediately within reach are world-famous destinations, attractions, theme parks, and entertainment and recreation for families of all ages.
